Mascarene Parrot

The Mascarene parrot or Mascarin is an extinct species of parrot that was endemic to the Mascarene island. The Mascarene parrot was 35 cm in length with a large red bill and long, rounded tail feathers. Very little is known about the Mascarene parrot in life. The parrot were eight and more species endemic to the Mascarenes but only the Mauritius parakeet has survived. The others probably all became extinct due to a combination of excessive hunting and deforestation.
